The series will premiere later in 2022, and is a cross between bingo and a word guessing game, similar to Wordle.

In the game, teams of two contestants “face off in fast-paced puzzle rounds to guess letters that reveal seemingly simple words. At the end of each one-hour episode, the two winning teams will make it through to a final showdown where one will walk away with an additional big cash prize.”

The first version premiered in 1987, hosted by Ronald Reagan’s son Michael Reagan. It later was rebooted by Game Show Network from 2002 to 2007, and again in 2011.

“We’re all ready to have fun again, and Lingo is the answer,” said RuPaul in a statement.
